Italianate Row Houses - Work in Progress
A LEGO model of some Victorian row houses. The real ones are in Albany, NY
About this creation


The main facades of the 5 houses. As is typical, the basement of the corner house contains a small store. (Yes, I did steal the window eyebrow and curtain design from the TLC Greengrocer model. :-))



The center 3 houses.



Closeup of the corner store. The interior needs more work.



A part of the real row of houses in Albany, NY. This uniform Italianate row contains 17 houses and is the longest uniform row in Albany. It was built during the winter of 1871-72.

Hehe, I am always looking for spare LEGO pieces. I don't want to put contact info here, but if you are local, I am in the phone book.

Great job Bill! Read about you in the Capital District Senior Spotlight and was wondering if you are looking to buy spare Lego pieces?

I am a parent of a student attending Loudonville Christian School and Leader of their first LEGO Club for 4th, 5th and 6th graders. We meet once a month and I would love to talk to you. The Elm Street creation is fantastic. Please email me at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

Wonderful work! I instantly recognized that as Elm St. A friend used to live there in the 1990s. Her building is (was) one in your photo. Any plans to put the do the grocery store across the street? Joking, of course. The Capitol would be a nice challenge, or the D & H RR building on Broadway. One of the layered designs where you can remove the floors and look inside would be extraordinary for the Capitol, and most challenging.

Excellent re-creation. Looks wonderful and reminds me also of some parts of San Francisco.

Hi William. I really like your Italianate Row Houses. You've included a bunch of detail made in a way that I've not see before. Great job - please do make more.

Beautiful rendition of the actual buildings. The stairs going to the raised first floors turned out very well.

I do wish, though, that Lego made more accurate, realistic architectural details. I do believe they could do a better job with windows, doors, molding, etc.

This looks excellent. Nice job and attention to detail. This would look great in a city layout.

Nick, Hey, great to hear from you! We owned # 188 and my parents owned #196. I agree, this was the time and place for historic preservation. -Bill

Dear William I enjoyed your rendition of the Elm Street houses. In the 70's we restored 210 Elm Street and received a Preservation award from Albany Historic Assoc. We (Elm Street Assoc.)even had a logo sticker and letterhead. These were the creative,passionatedays of historic preservation and community development. It was a lot of fun. Nick Aliotti

Very nice architecture. You have managed to use a lot of color without looking cartoon-y by using good detail and proportions. Great MOC!

As a huge fan of leggos, and also, from someone who lives a few blocks over from Elm Street--you did an amazing job. The detail is impressive!

Great work, Bill. Hello from Don and Lois, still rolling along after all these years!

Bill: Paul Grondahl here. I'm a reporter for the Albany Times Union and know your brother, Peter, and your mom. Do you live in Albany? I thought your Elm Street Lego creation might make a fun feature story. Could you e-mail me at the paper? Thanks, Paul

Wonderful work. I was just there in Albany recently and took many photos around Washington Park. Inspiring place for Lego.

Thanks for the complements! It took quite a few months to build, but that was mostly collecting the bricks on Bricklink. Each house is built to the same model, so once the design was complete, it could be easily replicated. Obviously, I stole quite a bit of the design from the Greengrocer :-) -Bill
